Hyundai Veloster Turbo

Korean carmaker Hyundai developed the Hyundai Veloster, but a lot of unsatisfied customers were asking for more power. Now is when the carmaker decided to take some attitude and so, they developed the 2013 Hyundai Veloster Turbo. The standard version of the model was first introduced as a 2012 model year and had success from the beginning between hatchback enthusiasts. The Veloster has a sporty styling that includes an extra door on the passenger side. In case of the Turbo variant, the designers have tried to offer a distinctive look and so, they offered a new front fascia with a larger grille opening, round fog lights and a lower chin spoiler. At the rear it has LED taillights and the dual center-mounted round exhaust outlets.


To complete the design, the carmaker offered very stylish 18-inch wheels that feature chrome inserts. The new Hyundai Veloster Turbo comes as optional with $1.000 matte gray paint job. This actually requires extra attention and particular care and not just a simple wash. The Veloster offers less interior space, but it features five seat belts, it has a four-passenger seating configuration, more rear hip room and four adults can fit in with no problems what so ever.


In terms of power train, the carmaker decided to keep the engine offered on the standard Veloster, so the new Turbo version also receives power from a 16.-liter direct-injected inline four-cylinder unit, but it produces 18 PSI more. In the end, the output reaches 201 horsepower and 195 lb. ft. of torque. The fuel consumption indicates 26 mpg in the city, 38 mpg on the highway and 30 mpg on a combine cycle. With all the modifications made, the engineers did not touch the suspension. The acceleration is a bit quicker with the added boost from the turbo.
